Aubrey Posted November 12, 2011 Share Posted November 12, 2011 1. Baby's name. Has been really bugging me. I like the name, but...it's like...we decided it too early on, too easily. Not enough conversation, not a family name like the rest of the kids. But we re-discussed & came to the same conclusion. Now. He doesn't LOOK like a Levi. But he looks JUST like my oldest as a baby, & oldest could easily pass as a Levi, so that's probably ok. I think...it's been the NICU & the suddenness of that & the paperwork...it's like he became Levi *legally* before having a chance to BE a Levi. They're supposed to come home & get squashed & cuddled & you get used to the name because littles don't know better than to call them by their names. On that note, oldest probably went the longest before being called by his name, having no littles to break it in for him. 2. Uterus issues. They said it was way to the right one day (not due to full bladder). The next day it was centered. The first night at the children's hospital, though, it was way to the left. I don't like the idea of it sliding around--that seems like a problem. The mw's said it wasn't, but... Also, the night it was way to the left, I had sharp pains in the left side. By the end of the night, they were so bad that I couldn't bend over to get something off the floor (paperwork). I was trying to hand it to the nurse, & it was so embarrassing to realize I just couldn't. I was worried about that, but then it hasn't bothered me since, so I guess it's ok. 3. My feet are swollen. And my ankles & legs. So bad that I can't cross them to hold up the baby when nursing. Much worse than ever when pg. I was worried about that, too, but after googling, it looks like this is just a side effect of IV fluids. Since I've never had those before, I guess it's just a surprise.
